Websters Pages & Dusty Attic Page :)


Thought I would do another layout with some of my Webster's stash while I wait on my new WP design team goodies (got a notice that my package has been shipped! Yippee!)  I used some Websters Pages Holywood Vogue and Ladies & Gents to make this one, along with WP bloomers, trims, Silhouettes, Princess Petals, Postcards (lilac bloom design) and alphabet stickers.  The cute topiary and vine are both Dusty Attic chippies.  Here are a few close-up pics...


I painted the flower posts by first painting them white.  Then I used some green, terra-cotta and brown inks on the piece to color it.

This page is about how gardening can be such a relaxing thing to do.  There is something about a potting shed that just makes me feel relaxed, a quiet, serene place to just focus on earth, plants, blooms and just let all your cares drift away.

I also wanted to let you all know about a fun and amazing scrap retreat planned by my friend and fellow DT member at Webster's Pages, Laura Hogue.....a scrappy retreat in Italy!  For more info check out her link here! http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=222532687797709

Just a little post today :)  ....thanks for stopping by my place ....pssst!  I've got a video tutorial to share with you all tomorrow and another little giveaway, so if you have a moment stop by!!

So beautiful. I love the colours and the subject - it's easy to imagine walking inside the potting shed and feeling instantly serene.
